If you're still rocking Windows XP and you were hoping to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on release then you're going to have some upgrading ahead of you. The FAQ page for the PC version of the game states that it will not support the aged OS.
It's not the first game to shun perhaps the most stable Windows version in history; Sleeping Dogs decided to lose support when it was released just last month.
Most high-profile releases support the older software, simply because it was the norm for gaming circles. However latest Steam survey results reveal that only 13% are using XP while a whopping 71% are switched on to Windows 7. Where's the love for Vista people?
It's time to leave this sinking ship and upgrade. Are you still using Windows XP? Let us know in the comments below.
